    Hi all,

    I took my 25mm f/1.4 CCTV lens apart in an attempt to fix a barrel wobble, but it seems I have mixed up the order of the rear element and a few washers and can't seem to put the lens back together properly again.

    Before I upload any photos (after I get home from work), wondering if anyone has dismantled this lens before and could offer some advice.

    Thanks in advance!:th_salute:

    I think I did the same thing you did. I couldn't get the lens to go back in. I think it has to be put in the opposite way... while it's being constructed. Meaning one part goes in one end and the other part in the other- then they're glued or something (not threaded)- because I did break mine :frown:

    I comes apart easily, but I over twisted a glued part, a part that wasn't meant to come apart, and I broke what appeared to be a stopper of some sort. I ended up buying a new one :mad:
